 As you can see by the table above, for every [[system:​token|token-level]] your character has, you gain some number of "​investments"​ that can be placed up to a maximum of one in each skill of your choice. This means that there will be skills that you're not great at, and that's OK! This is meant to be a team game. As your character grows they can become either incredibly talented in one set of skills, or more well rounded, depending on their willingness to rely on and work with others. As you can see by the table above, for every [[system:​token|token-level]] your character has, you gain some number of "​investments"​ that can be placed up to a maximum of one in each skill of your choice.

 **Force** - The Force skill is all about your ability to exert your grit and strength on the world around you. It might represent your ability to shove a boulder, hold a door closed, or open a door or a chest. **Force** - The Force skill is all about your ability to exert your grit and strength on the world around you.

-**Chuck** - The Chuck skill is all about your ability to throw things as hard as you can. It's pretty self explanatory,​ but whether you're throwing an axe at an enemy, a bag onto the roof of the building, or your particularly small friend into battle, you'll be using the Chuck skill. Sometimes this will be used in tandem with Precision. 
  
 **Endure** - The Endure skill is all about your ability to resist pressures or toxins. It acts as more of a constant passive, but there might be situations in which you're asked to check for endurance or you can otherwise leverage your endurance. It might be used to drink a friend (or enemy) under the table, make a grand-stand against fading to black, or muddle through a furnace-like environment. **Endure** - The Endure skill is all about your ability to resist pressures or toxins.

 **Entertain** - Entertain can be used in a wide variety of ways but will usually tie in some way to a horizontal aspect of your character, something relating to your backstory, a practiced instrument, a unique style of dance, or a series of tales you know and have rehearsed. It's your ability to move a crowd with a practiced art.  **Entertain** - Entertain can be used in a wide variety of ways but will usually tie in some way to a horizontal aspect of your character, something relating to your backstory, a practiced instrument, a unique style of dance, or a series of tales you know and have rehearsed.

-**Convince** - The Convince skill functions as you would expect it to, it's your ability to make a compelling rationale with true statements, and shows how genuinely you may represent those emotions.+**Convince** - The Convince skill functions as you would expect it to, it's your ability to make a compelling rationale with true statements, and shows how genuinely you may represent those emotions. This is also your ability to show your truthful dedication to a cause or group and to leverage that relationship to your advantage.
  
-**Dedication** - This is your ability to demonstrate your resolve or dedication to a cause, group, concept, or person through a standalone roll/stat. If you're trying to leverage a group you're associated with, or maybe recall something related to one of your associations,​ this would be the stat to use. 
  
 ==== Tempo ==== ==== Tempo ====
 **Precision** - The Precision skill is your ability to aim a ranged weapon in the heat of the moment, to get your grappling hook fastened to the perfect rock, or to aim for that vital point when attacking with a knife. ​ **Precision** - The Precision skill is your ability to aim a ranged weapon in the heat of the moment, to get your grappling hook fastened to the perfect rock, or to aim for that vital point when attacking with a knife. ​

-**Subtlety** - Subtlety is the art of matching your timing with the world around you, to mask your footsteps with environmental sounds, to cut the purse as it's rocking back while keeping lockstep with your mark, to lead with your left hand and palm the gem with your right making it look like it's vanished into thin air. 
  
 **Haste** - Haste represents your ability to match instinct to fast twitch muscle. This will impact your chances to dodge an attack, scurry out of the way of an explosion or a splash of acid, to catch up with your love as they run out in front of a carriage. This is a largely passive skill, but also represents your ability to hone your adrenaline into action. **Haste** - Haste represents your ability to match instinct to fast twitch muscle.

-**Grace** - Grace is your ability to carry out certain acts with style and class. To evaluate your movements as you make them in a way that seems natural and effortless. It could be used to imitate a stance in combat, or to evaluate the movements of your enemy and act around them. Or to read the dance of a maiden or gentleman you're trying to impress and move along with them.+**Grace** - Grace is your ability to carry out certain acts with style and class.
